About Ryuho Okawa
Ryuho Okawa is a renowned author and opinion leader in Japan, with a growing international following. Okawa began receiving spiritual messages from in 1981, when holy beings appeared before him with impassioned messages urging him to deliver God’s words to earth. This coincided with the awakening of Okawa’s subconscious and a calling to become a spiritual leader and world teacher, inspiring the world with the power of God’s truths. Through these conversations with divine beings and profound spiritual contemplation, Okawa developed the philosophy that would become the core of his teachings. Okawa has taken this gift and applied it to conduct spiritual interviews with individuals who hold key knowledge, as well as important figures in history, politics, religion and business. Okawa holds these spiritual interviews as his core methods of revealing truths that would otherwise possibly go unknown, as well as for the purpose of pursuing global justice, and to bring peace and harmony in the world. Each interview is taped live in front of an audience, and then published as a book. To date, Okawa has published more than 200 spiritual interviews.
Okawa continues to publish books and give lectures around the world with the hope of bringing a bright future for humankind. His endeavors to awaken people to the truths of the spirit world, as well as to establish justice and peace in this world, have attracted millions of readers and followers globally.
